life is in the details

they say that there are detail-oriented people and big picture people. (i don't know who "they" is, but they sure say a lot) if you think about it, we need both kinds of people, and both kinds of people need each other. the details don't make sense without a big picture, and the big picture cannot exist without the details

details really tell us so much. they tell us something that we may not see at first glance. a lot of details only become apparent after intense focus. or they continue to be unfolded overtime if you keep coming back to something again & again.

i've been really loving capturing the small details lately. instead of trying to fit everything into a picture, i zoom in on a smaller piece to capture. this has overflowed into the rest of my life and has helped me focus in on the smaller details of situations. 

one of my favorite things is a picture that focuses in on one small thing, but you can see bigger details blurred out in the back. it just says so much and i think it is a good analogy for life. it's good to focus on the details, but it's good to keep the big picture in the back of your mind as well. because the big picture should guide your focus.

it's okay to be a big picture person. and it's okay to be a detail-oriented person. and ya know what? it's okay to be a little bit of both. there's no wrong way to eat a Reese's.
